I just found out that my nephew and his wife are expecting twin boys . The shower is in may. here is the question, they are wanting to do a sheetcake,and I want to do the baby figures with fondant laying on a blanket. The cake will be a 12x18 sheet cake. How big do I need to make the baby figures and the blanket so it looks balanced out? I dont want it to little and have alot of room around the figures that is blank looking. I hope this makes since.
Any help is GREATLY appreciated

HOW SWEET CONGRAD...I WOULD DO THEM REGULAR SIZES AND ADD TEDDY BEARS OR OTHER LITTLE THINGS IF YOU GO TO THE GALLERY THEY HAVE LOTS OF GREAT IDEAS.

I don't know if it helps, but in my pics I have a 12x18 Buzz lightyear cake. Buzz was about 2 1/2" to 3" tall and IMO way too small...

O.k. what you do is make an area - oval, round or even rectangle by piping a border inside the edge of the cake - about 2-3" in. Between the edge & the boarer fill in w/cornelli or jimmies/sprinkles or airbrush it a different color. Now your small figures will look great in the smaller area.
You can surround this border w/flowers on an upper & lower corner or around the top 2/3rds or at each of the 4 corners.
I have a few pix in my photos that will help you see what I'm talking about. The graduation cakes and a couple of others.
